VALA recognises that regional, rural and indigenous members of the Library community face additional barriers to participation in both library and technical events. The Diversity Scholarship is offered to individuals who in normal circumstances would not generally attend a VALA event or would struggle to attend due to financial or other hardship.

One Scholarship is offered for VALA Tech Camp 2017 and three individual scholarships for the VALA2018 Conference (applications open in September).
